Teresa Bryant, portrayed by Karen Henthorn, is the ex-wife of Jerry Morton.


Teresa first appeared on 28th March 2007 as the ex-wife of Jerry Morton. She mistreated her children Kayleigh and Finlay, resulting in Jerry taking them back to Weatherfield.

She returned in May 2008 following Jerry's heart attack. In June 2008, she conned Lloyd Mullaney into thinking that Finlay was his son, and took advantage of Lloyd, when this was revealed to Jerry, he responded by attempting to throw Teresa out, though he later let an insistent Teresa stay a little longer, much to her daughter, Mel's dismay. Teresa revealed that her ex-boyfriend Gary Denmark, Finlay's father, used to beat her, and it was discovered he was now in prison. On 25th June 2008, Teresa began a brief feud with the Websters after she attacked Rosie at David Platt's house party when she made jibes about Jerry's weight.

In August 2008, Teresa plotted to poison Jerry with an overdose of warfarin tablets, as an attempt to stay living at No.6. She constantly laced Jerry's meals with his tablets.

Tension relaxed when Mel went on a holiday with cop mate Abi Sharpe, but when Mel returned she was angry that Teresa was still living at No. 6. Teresa protested that Jerry was increasingly unwell and pale, so Jerry had let her move back in. Mel soon discovered Teresa's lie and the two had an argument. Mel later gave Jerry an ultimatum - Teresa moves out or she does, resulting in Mel going to stay at Abi's. Later, Jerry collapsed and banged his head on the coffee table leaving him with a bleeding ear, as a result of Teresa's poisoning. Teresa later confessed to Jerry whilst he was in hospital, despite Jerry's proposal to give it another go with her.

In September 2008, Teresa helped Mel get revenge for her as she was involved in an attack which resulted in the wounding of Abi Sharpe by a vicious girl gang, when she gave one of the girls a blow to the head with a heel of her shoe. Earlier that night, Mel and Teresa reconciled and settled their differences. However, when Mel discovered that Teresa had plotted to poison Jerry, they yet again fell out and Mel arrested Teresa for attempted murder. The police later released her after Jerry denied that she had tried to kill him. Teresa then turned up at No.6 that night begging for forgiveness but Jerry and the kids ordered her to leave. In October 2008, Darryl brought a drunken Teresa back to the house much to the disgruntlement of Mel who packed her things and left home unable to be under the same roof as her mother, she also caused Tina to quit her job at the kebab shop.
